Dancing Teacakes – Commonwealth Games 2014 Highlights


This summer, Glasgow (our spiritual home) is hosting the 2014 Commonwealth Games.  The much anticipated Opening Ceremony hit the world’s TV screens this Wednesday evening, and was an undoubted riot of Scottish-ness.

The highlight of the Opening Ceremony (and perhaps even of the year?!) has got to be the cavalcade of giant dancing Tunnocks Teacakes that surrounded a tartan-clad John Barrowman, whilst he sang his wee head off.

We’ve selected our favourite #DancingTeacake screenshots from the extravaganza to share with you, or you can watch the whole thing for the next five days on BBC’s iPlayer (skip to 01:05:25 for #DancingTeacake goodness!) Also look out for the foam Forth Bridge supported by 6ft Irn Bru cans: that’s pretty exciting!
